Hi stampers! It's Tuesday so head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and check out the latest challenge. This week it's all about fall!
The weather has really cooled down here in the past few weeks so it's been feeling like fall for sure. I love wearing shorts and comfy sweatshirts and it's been just the weather for that! I can't wait for the leaves to change either, it's always so pretty! I can't wait to look out of my mom's new house and look at the fall colors either. Their new house is at the edge of a hill that overlooks the "bottom" as we call it and it's gorgeous any day but it's going to be amazing this fall! Maybe I'll see some of these colors out of the window:
Stamps: Warmest of wishes, distressed dots, teeny tiny wishes
Paper: More mustard, pool party, soft suede, very vanilla
Ink: More mustard, soft suede
Accessories: Scallop and circle punches, shaker frames, window sheet, scallop trim border punch, linen embossing folder, pool party ruffled ribbon, champagne glass glitter
Well, I'll at least see the brown and gold...not sure about the blue:-) I pulled the inspiration for this card from the Spice Cake DSP which I LOVE and I totally love the combo of soft suede, more mustard, and pool party! And how fun is this card? It's a shaker card made with the new shaker frames from the new holiday mini. They make it super easy to make a shaker card; all you have to do it pick a shaker frame size and use the coordinating circle punch or die! As soon as I saw them in the mini and then got this stamp set free at convention I knew I had to make a shaker card with it!
I kept the card pretty simple since I wanted the shaker to stand out. I did edge the wreath with gold smooch accent ink to set it off just a bit as it looked a bit too plain. And I told you I was on a roll with the distressed dots background stamp I just got. I love the distressed look of it! The finishing detail is the pool party bow that I attached with a glue dot!
